    I am looking to buy a bike but I don't know what I want to spend. First of all I'm 25 about 165 and I don't know about comfort or whatever. I don't know what size to look for I see alot of 20" is that a good enough size ? Help me out.....

    Are you look for BMX,MTB, or one of them sissy french bikes, if you're looking for BMX got with 20" cause most of them are 20" except a few dirt or race bikes wich are 24, and there are a few 16 inch bikes too. I have honestly no idea about MTB, or pansy lil french bikes, pick out what your most comfortable on thats all i can say, also here are the few bands to stay away from, ANYTHING AT WALMART, Mongooses under $300, and pretty much everything under $300. Thats all i can tell you.

    Well, you definitely want something with at least a 20.5" top tube.
